Utah's Gordon Hayward undergoes a minor surgery
Over the weekend, the Utah Jazz made an unexpected announcement about the health of one of their best players. Gordon Hayward, after a season in which he proved himself as one of the most effective small forwards in the game, is having troubles with his right heel.
The injury doesn't seem to be anything too terrible, so far, though:
Hayward, the leading scorer for the Jazz in 2014-15, missed the three final games of the regular season. It now appears that this surgery and that spell of rest could be related.
Stay tuned as this story develops.
